Botox Injections: Facts you need to know
April 12, 2013
Botox is a official name for Botulinum Toxin which is in fact one of the strongest neuro toxin made from the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum.
Botox Injections work great when paired with Dermal Fillers to make skin appear taut, supple and firm whilst concealing wrinkles. Known as a liquid facelift and a cost effective, painfree alternative to cosmetic surgery, Botox is relatively cheaper with no downtime at all and similar results.
Botox can fill out crows feet around the eye area as well as disguise the under eye bags which may have developed as a result of stress or life style. Under eye lines can also be ironed out with this procedure so you can look younger, refreshed and more awake!
Specific facial muscles can be targeted with this non-invasive and quick treatment so be assured that the effects will not spread to the rest of the face. Also, results last up to 6-8 months leaving you carefree about skin’s ageing concerns.
A very common myth attached to Botox Treatment is that a person may not be able to express themselves in the same way as before due to restricted facial movement. This is only the effect of inappropriate or extreme dosage which most professional doctors and nurses will avoid going for. A subtle and strategic injection will only subtly smooth out wrinkles, still leaving you natural and able to display emotions.
Side effects such as droopy lids, headaches, swelling, bruising, numbness, nausea and flu like symptoms are some of the common side effects of Botox Injections which can possibly occur in some clients but rest assured, they are only short lived and will disappear in a few days.
You are required to contract the muscles in the area where Botox Injections will be administered such as to cringe or scowl to see the wrinkles and fine lines, after which a tiny needle will directly inject the liquid into your facial muscles.
One in ten young women have considered trying Botox.
Being used since decades, Botox albeit a popular anti-ageing treatment for cosmetic use has been used for over two decades to treat other medical conditions as well.
There is no proven research that demonstrates that Botox works better than anti-ageing lotions and potions. However, when skin care works on the surface of the skin taking it’s time to absorb and work, Botox Injections are administered directly below the surface of the skin in the facial muscles to be treated in order to help them relax.
